It was believed to be the cause of the ripples, as if the object was being towed, although the possibility of a blemish on the negative could not be ruled out.
An analysis of the full photograph indicated that the object was small, about 60 to 90 cm (2 to 3 ft) long.
Analysis of the original image fostered further doubt.
In 1993, the makers of the Discovery Communications documentary Loch Ness Discovered analysed the uncropped image and found a white object visible in every version of the photo (implying that it was on the negative).
It was slightly blurred, and it has been noted that if one looks closely the head of a dog can be seen.

Christopher Cairney uses a specific historical and cultural analysis of Adomnán to separate Adomnán's story about St.
Columba sent a follower, Luigne moccu Min, to swim across the river.
The beast approached him, but Columba made the sign of the cross and said: "Go no further. Go back at once." Sceptics question the narrative's reliability, noting that water-beast stories were extremely common in medieval hagiographies and Adomnán's tale probably recycles a common motif attached to a local landmark.
